442 ha Farm in Hankey
R 4 850 000
I am one of the few lucky people who are so blessed to be doing what I love best. My passion is farms, meeting the farmers both the buyers and the sellers, exploring the beautiful farmlands (an experience that money cant buy). Through this lifestyle I honestly fall in love with every farm that I list because each and every farm has its own personality, its own true potential and its own dreams (untold stories and wishes).
I usually cannot wait to share my (yes, they become my own) newest farm with all and sundry. Now my latest acquisition is one that at first, I was very hesitant to share, reason being, it grew on me to such an extent that I felt that if I had the available funds, I would have purchased it for myself.
Why you may ask?
The answer is so simple as this truly beautiful farm offers a comfortable open plan 4-bedroomed house which is in need of nothing else but a fresh coat of paint and your own personal touch. The owners are currently renovating the study and when this room is completed there will be windows on two sides allowing for the sunshine to just filter through, warming not just the room itself but also your heart. I can just imagine spending days on end there, soaking up the sun and taking in the breath-taking view through those self-same windows.
The property also has a double garage.
A convenient sized garden inclusive of a little netted vegetable garden for the avid gardener.
Chicken pens close by with enough space for plenty of chickens.
The shed,7m X 18m, is walking distance from the house and provides shelter for the lambs at present but is good enough to use for whatever you deem necessary.
There is a two bedroomed cottage which currently serves as home to the workers.
This farm has a registered borehole that provides 16000 litres per hour however there are a further 2 boreholes that are not in use at present because the current owner does not need the extra water. Water rights, 23 400 cubic metres of water per year is also registered to this farm from the Tsitsikamma waterboard. There are also 2 dams which are empty at present but they would provide sufficient water for a long period of time once full. Hours of fun could be had by all in the dams.
This farm,442 hectares, is properly fenced and divided into 7 camps each with their own water crib. To my surprise one of the camps have electric fencing keeping the free roaming pigs inside. And believe me, they are as happy as can be, roaming, ploughing and rearing their offspring the way nature intended them to do. They are tame as well!!
There is a kloof running through the farm, originating from the mountains on the one side and acting as a catchment area for the water. It is full of trees and the thicket provides good shelter for the animals. I can imagine having a little cabin amongst these trees, hiding away from the world, imagining my own little fairy tale worlda childs dream...or an adults fantasy.
The fields are in a good condition and even though this is a sheep farmers dream the current owner manages the grazing of his flock, ensuring that he does not exploit nature or her resources.
Studies have been done on drip irrigation and it was found that it would be feasible and that the proposed position of the tank would eliminate the need for a pump as the pressure would be more than adequate to feed the drips.
The property lends itself to development but is also capable of providing a good income as it stands.
There is just something to this farm Maybe it is the wind whispering through the trees in the kloof, the silence in the fields, maybe it is the gigantic windmills on the far horizon or even the sight of the Van Stadens beach a bit further down. I can imagine living a tranquil lifestyle here. I can Imagine finding oneself on horseback, just you, the horse and the absolute fabulousness of nature all around.
This wonderful 442 hectares is waiting on your call. This is a real farm and a real way of living .Do not miss out on this opportunity.
There is also the opportunity to buy the farm as a business, inclusive of all the livestock and or implements.
